Short summary
Nuuk fen site is a well-instrumented Greenlandic site where soil physical variables and greenhouse gas fluxes are monitored. But knowledge of soil carbon stocks and profiles is missing. This is a crucial shortcoming for a complete evaluation of models. For the first time we measured soil carbon and nitrogen density, profiles, and stocks in the Nuuk peatland. This new dataset can contribute to further develop joint modeling of greenhouse gas emissions and soil carbon in land-surface models.
